v. To move a phone number from one carrier or type of service to another; p.t., ported.
n. The act of porting a number.
I got a cell phone and ported the landline number to my cell phone. It was only supposed to take a week or so to port the number, but it took two months, instead.
The port went through yesterday, only no one bothered to tell me. I've had my cell phone turned off most of the time since no one could call it any way until the number is ported, so when I turned it on this morning it suddenly had four voice mails waiting.
